Looks like Ron Garrant has bought the former Lou Vanderwey Mugen from Frank. Ron is from Essex County. Ron ran the MidWest Series in the early 90s and was one of the fastest in the 8th 2WD Class with a RC500, always in contention for the A Main win.

Ron and I were two of the few people who voted to run in the Rain at MidWest Series Races.

It will be good to have him join us on the Asphalt.

Ron - maybe we can get Brad Makric to return??

Bob Giller - are you next???? Darrin "Hollywood" Charbonneau????????????

Exclamation

Without further delay here is our tentative 2008 RACING Schedule:

Race No. 1 ~ Sunday, April 27

Race No. 2 ~ Sunday, May 11

Can-Am Challenge ~ May 24-25 RC PRO Race

Race No. 3 ~ Sunday, June 8

Race No. 4 ~ Sunday, June 22

Canadian Gas On Road Nationals ~ June 28-29

Race No. 5 ~ Sunday, July 13

Race No. 6 ~ Sunday, July 27

ROAD TRIP - Great Lakes Challenge TOLEDO August 1-3

Race No. 7 ~ Sunday, August 17

ROAD TRIP - ROAR 8th NATIONALS - Maryland - September 3-7

Race # 8 and Charity Race ~ Sunday, September 14

ROAD TRIP - Toledo MidWest Series Race - September 20-21

Race No. 9 ~ Sunday, September 28

We are 1 of 4 stops in our RC Pro Division, the others being Toledo, Cincinnati & Joliet. We have an obligation not to schedule a local racing event in conflict with these 3 other division dates, hence this tentative schedule. Should there be sufficient interest in a John Posthumus Memorial Endurance Race, we will add this event to an existing Sunday race date or perhaps schedule it on the Saturday of an existing scheduled race weekend.

As soon as the RC Pro schedule is known, we'll carve this schedule into stone.

April 27 can not come soon enough.

We should plan a test and tune day on April 20 if the weather looks nice, or on April 26 even better. I have been asked a few times if we were having a test day.

Saturday, April 26 seems a logical date for a test'n'tune session in my opinion.
